Meet Your Host

Kendra Hoffman is an ecological designer, habitat steward, community organizer, nature-based educator and somatic movement therapist, among other things! She founded LadyBug EarthCare in 2019 after years of working on local farms, landscaping and gardening with her mom. As she continues to deepen her relationships with community members and Nature, she grows in recognition of how essential to our wellbeing and the health of the planet it is to be on an EarthCare journey.

The 2023 MidAtlantic EarthCare Summit is Kendra's effort to bring people together, share bioregional knowledge and empower each other to act with impact by connecting with Nature.

She hopes you join us!

Hey there, Human... we're not going to pretend we know exactly who you are, or what you do daily, but we know you CARE. A lot.

Do you feel overwhelmed by species extinction, biodiversity loss and general ecological awareness?

We do, often.

➔ Isn't it frustrating when there seems to be so little time or money to address such a big problem?

This doesn't have to stop us!

➔ Are you curious about ecological gardening, building habitat and supporting pollinators but aren't sure where to start?

We got you.

➔ How would you feel if there were a few small actions you could take that made a big difference for wildlife?

This relieves and excites us too.

Increase your Impact

There are many simple, easy, cost-effective ways to increase air and water quality, capture carbon, regenerate soil, support pollinators and build habitat for wildlife, with style and ease.

The 2023 EarthCare Summit is designed to offer you tips, tricks, techniques, resources, knowledge and hands-on activities that can restore your relationship with nature in a way that empowers you to act with powerful impact for our ecosystems, and specifically the Chesapeake Bay.

STEP 4: Increase Your Impact

And finally! You're on your way to an EarthCare lifestyle and practice this year that helps you build habitat for wildlife, support pollinators and deepen your relationship with Nature. 

Hey, I'm Kendra

This is me prepping soil on my urban lot in Harrisburg with a favorite tool of mine, the broadfork. This is just one of many practical, hands-on things you could learn about during the EarthCare Summit.

But I'm more excited about the idea of you connecting with other local ecology focused community members, activists, teachers and speakers - real humans, doing real grounded work, inspired by their relationship with Nature and making an impact for our bio-region, especially the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay.

The EarthCare Summit is a way to connect us all, increase our capacity for ecologically beneficial action, and therefore increase our impact - and it all begins with connection.

I look forward to meeting you during the event!
